Description of problem:
Specifying /dev/<device name> fails, although if you end up choosing
the devices by hand, you're presented with a list in which device
names all start with /dev/. It would be consistent for anaconda to
accept (and discard, if appropriate), the /dev/ prefix in device names.
I get the impression that anaconda also fails if --dir= starts with a
slash. I had that as well as /dev/hda2 in my kickstart file but,
after that failed and I chose /dev/hda2 from the list presented to me
by anaconda, it still failed to mount. Before realizing the slash
might be a problem, I changed the kickstart file to --partition=hda2,
and removed the slash from --dir as well, so I'm not sure about this
problem. It could also be that it rejected a pathname such as
--dir=/foo/bar; after moving the isos from foo/bar to foo, and
changing the kickstart file to say --dir=foo, it worked.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set up a kickstart file with harddrive --dir=/foo/bar
Actual Results: It won't mount /dev/hda2, but rather fail ot mount
After selecting /dev/hda2 in the list of options, it will still fail
to find the isos.
Expected Results: Ideally, same as --dir=foo/bar --partition=hda2
Fixed in CVS
Confirmed, --partition=/dev/hda2 works in re1001.0, thanks!
